A 22-year-old Duarte man was arrested after allegedly running a red light and hitting another car broadside Saturday night, killing the 61-year-old driver, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

Elliott M. Imm was driving south on Valinda Avenue with a 22-year-old female passenger about 11:20 p.m. when he allegedly failed to stop at a red light at Temple Avenue and crashed into the driver's side of a 2003 Chrysler, police said.

The driver of the Chrysler, a resident of Valinda, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Officials did not immediately release his name because his family had not been notified.

Imm and his passenger were taken to Queen of the Valley Medical Center to be treated. Police did not know whether alcohol or drugs were factors in the accident.
